Simbi Akande is one of five cast in Sondheim’s Putting It Together at the Hope Mill Theatre

Simbi trained at Mountview Academy of Academy Arts. Her Theatre credits include Wurca 1 in Qu4rter (Workshop), Nadia in F**KED in Marrakech (Workshop), Marta in Company (Aberdeen Arts Centre), Tzeitel in Fiddler On the Roof (Chichester Festival Theatre), Clara Brown in Ghost (UK Tour), Mamie Till in Rosa The Musical (Workshop), Show Boat (New London Theatre) and A Feast Of The Gods (Almeida).

Five people are thrown together at a cocktail party in a Manhattan penthouse. With a dose of imagination and a dash of musical flair, the guests transform the apartment into a multitude of settings such as the stage of an abandoned theatre, an estate in Sweden, an island outside of Paris, a street off the Roman Forum, the woods of a fairy tale and a mythical town in the Southwest.
